STONES THROW RECORDS PARTY
Special Guest DAM-FUNK (Stones Throw Records)
Along with Dj Manuvers//Mr. Brown
BackRm Ray Milian//Joshy Josh
Though he’s frequently tagged as “the ambassador of Boogie,” Dam-Funk (pronounced: “Dame” as in his first name Damon) doesn’t make “boogie music” — the post-disco amalgam of funk, electro, New Wave and disco that lit up discotheques and roller rinks from Los Angeles to London throughout the early ’80s. Not content to traffic in polite revisionism, the Pasadena-raised, Leimert Park-based Stones Throw artist describes his brand of chromatic tripped-out soul as “modern funk,” which is arguably the most accurate description of his syncretistic meld of P-Funk and Prince to drum machines and post-house groove.
